State highway officials plan to hold a public hearing this week in Paragould to discuss plans for a new two-lane highway in the Greene County city.
The road is planned to start at the intersection of U.S. 412 and 72nd Street and run 5.2 miles south to U.S. 49/Linwood Drive, just south of Statler Road, the Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department said.
The meeting is set for 4-7 p.m. Tuesday in meeting room C of the Paragould Community Center, 3404 Linwood Drive. The public is invited any time during those hours to view displays, ask questions and comment, highway officials said.
More information is available by calling the department's Environmental Division at (501) 569-2281.
